Granary from Murów, mid-19th century

It was constructed in 1850s on the layout close to a rectangle. It has two floors and a functional attic. There is a gable roof covered with shingle.

On the ground floor, there is an exhibition arranged of an old peasant granary displaying the equipment then used on a farm – among others a large churn (so called buterermaszina, from German, meaning a butter machine), which was used for making larger amounts of butter, a rack for baked cakes, on which baking trays with ready cakes were put to get cold. In the granary, there is also a painted chest which after years of being used and partial wear usually found its place in utility rooms as a chest for storing grain.
